Instagram might be full of beautiful parties and lavish décor, but most events aren’t like that.

Event planning often makes the top ten list for most stressful jobs in the US. That doesn't mean it isn't fulfilling or fun, you just need to know that it's hard work. 


#3 Customer Care is EVERYTHING. 

It’s called hospitality for a reason. You’ll be working with all kinds of people and personalities.  Learn how to anticipate the needs of your attendees and be able to solve their problems with a smile!
